"Originally published in Great Britain in 2010 by Hodder & Stoughton"--T.p. verso.

"Named One of the Year's Top Ten Crime Books in the UK... A Masterwork of Suspense from "Iceland's Crime Queen" (The Scotsman) In 1973, a volcanic eruption buried an entire Icelandic village in lava and ash. Now this macabre tourist attraction proves deadly once again--when the discovery of fresh bodies casts a shadow of suspicion onto Markus Magnusson, a man accused of killing his childhood sweetheart. His attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir finds that her client has a most inventive story to tell. But the locals seem oddly reluctant to back him up... Filled with unforgettable characters, unexpected twists, and superb psychological suspense, Ashes to Dust is a superlative thriller from an acclaimed master of Nordic fiction"-- Provided by publisher.

Nordic Fiction = good.

As a fan of Icelandic crime dramas, especially those by Arnadur Indriðason, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir's novels are some fresh reads that fit the genre well. I'll read just about anything set in Iceland, and I really like Thora's attitude. Highly recommend Sigurðardóttir's series if you're into nordic fiction.
